The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

It’s no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    Journal: Novice on HCT-12

    I always got minor questions about the routine popping up here and there, so I figured I might as well start a journal so people can see what I'm doing if I need advice.

    This is my week three on HCT-12, and I've been starting pretty easy. Today was the first WO that felt hard (thanks to DLs).

    Here are the last three WOs:

    B (Jan 12.)

    90kg x 6+2+2+2

    Romanian DL
    75kg x 6+2+2+2 (first time I did these)

    Seated calf stuff
    30kg x 6+2+2+2

    25kg+ez-bar x 6+2+2+2

    Abs and back extensions.


    A (Jan 14th)

    7,5kg x 6+2+2+2 (body weight is something like 93-94 kg)

    DB floor press
    34kg x 5+2+2+2 (couldn't do six on the first set. I really love this one)

    Pendlay rows
    74kg x 6+2+2+2

    Arnold press
    20kg x ? (First time I tried these.)

    Close grip BP
    55kg x 6+3+3+3


    B (Jan 17.)

    120kg x 5 (personal best, and I felt in full control)
    110kg x 5

    I was planning to do six reps on the back-off set, but I felt too close to technique-failure on the fifth rep so I stopped. I might drop the back-off set later, as I have had very good progress just doing one straight set of five while doing Starting Strength. I felt pretty tired after this too.

    Leg press
    120kg x 6+2+2+2

    30kg+ez-bar x 6+2+2+2 (Weight was a bit to heavy on this one. Couldn't have done one more rep on any of the sets)


    Back extensions
    3x10 body weight


    Today's WO felt incredibly awesome. Straight into top 5 list of workouts ever
